Abstract (English)

This comprehensive examination approaches Urquhart's work from an anthropological perspective. Incorporating sources ranging from Goya and Blake to well known critics of postmodernism, Vastokas offers an interpretation which is rooted in chronological biographic history of the artist's themes: lump works, the garden, circles, boxes, doors, thresholds, tunnels, ladders. Biographical notes. 64 bibl. ref.
